Full HD 60p/24p Camcorder w/ advanced Manual Controls

Capture special occasions in the stunningly-sharp, 24p/60p HD they deserve with silky-smooth Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization that keeps your memories looking their best. You can also share your family’s special moments up to 200” with the built-in projector for an instant at-the-movies feel. Feeling artistic?

1920x1080 Full HD 24p/60p w/24.5MP Exmor R CMOS Sensor

Create cinematic video in high definition 1920 x 1080 24p/60p and high quality 24.5MP still images. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor R CMOS sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.

Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization

On standard Optical SteadyShot camcorders a single “shift lens” is moved in the optical block to offset camera shake. Balanced Optical SteadyShot w/ Active Mode moves the entire optical block at once, maintaining the integrity of the optical path and reducing shake. It also reduces vignetting (light falloff towards the edge of a scene) and lowers distortion in videos and still photos.

Project ~200 videos w/ 50lm built-in projector via HDMI"

Enjoy your favorite memories virtually anywhere with the high-contrast 50 lumen projector built-in to the LCD panel. The HDMI multi-terminal allows you to connect external devices that have an HDMI output (smartphones, laptops, tablets, etc.) and use the camcorder’s projector to enjoy other forms of entertainment such as video games and streaming videos from the Internet. The camcorder even has built-in Auto Keystone Adjustment, which corrects the dimensions of the projected image when you cannot situate the device straight on to the wall.

Manual Control (Iris/Shutter/Exposure/White Balance)

Get the most out of your camcorder with enhanced manual controls. The assignable dial allows for control of focus, exposure, white balance, iris, and shutter speed.

Wireless control, transfer, data backup via Wi-Fi/NFC1
